A View from the Road—February 2016
Work Zone App on iPhone
We recently released a new smart phone app: Work Zone NYS for iPhone. An Android version is being readied as quickly as possible. The new app allows you to set up common traffic control plans, add notes, and send an email of the plan to document what you have done.
We are also making updates to the Stop NY Invasives app available on both iPhone and Android. Please let us know what you think about both apps and send us comments to make both better. By collaborating, we will always be able to have a better application. Thanks for the help.
Grant for Work Zone and Flagger Pocket Guides
We also have received a grant to allow us to purchase Work Zone and Flagger Pocket Guides for both municipal and private organizations. The guides are currently being printed and will be free for everyone until we run out. The only cost is shipping for non-municipal requests.
The Work Zone Guide covers more types of work zones than the app (and can be dropped without breaking). The Flagger Guide covers the basics of flagging operations and is a great tool to help with training all flaggers with or without experience.
